New Real Madrid Galactico is eager to link-up with the World's most expensive transfer - erstwhile Tottenham Hotspur star Gareth Bale.

World Cup star James Rodriguez, who created 11 goal-scoring opportunities, two assists, attempted 16 shots and scored six goals from five appearances in Brazil, has finally been confirmed as the latest Real Madrid superstar signing as the Colombian completes his transfer from AS Monaco.

An €80 million recruit, Rodriguez joins a star-studded Los Blancos cast as Carlo Ancelotti looks to capitalise on the club's unprecedented La Decima success last term having collected their tenth Champions League title.

Real now possess a mouth-watering attack, with Toni Kroos and Rodriguez the respective pass master and playmaker to fellow attackers Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale.

The latter even welcomed Rodriguez to the club via social media and Rodriguez was swift to reply to the Welshman, saying: "I can't wait to meet you and the team."

Rodriguez has committed to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu side for six seasons and was given a fountain pen, a replica of the stadium and two shirts with his name and the number ten on the back for both himself and his daughter.
